Cyber Corps Program Trains Spies For the Digital Age, In Oklahoma

budr Re:Go Tulsa...? (118 comments)

Heh. I really don't know, but I'll bet even Vermont has their share of Archie Bunkers.

So you're from Vermont? Do they accept immigrants from flaming red fly-over country?

Cyber Corps Program Trains Spies For the Digital Age, In Oklahoma

budr Re:Go Tulsa...? (118 comments)

I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life. I know very well how "red" my state is, and isn't. One very selective statistic about a national election held once every four years tells you very little about a state or its people. I suppose you think all Vermonters are flaming socialists because they keep re-electing Bernie Sanders.

People are More Accepting of Spam

budr Re:People are More Accepting of Spam (278 comments)

I don't give a damn what the survey says. I'm not seeing much if any more spam because my filters are smarter than the spammers. And I do not tolerate spam at all. Period.

partial internet outage, ports blocked maybe?

budr budr writes  |  more than 5 years ago

budr (111245) writes "Starting sometime yesterday I'm having trouble connecting to imap servers, https, almost anything except plain vanilla http. Looks almost as if everything is blocked except port 80. I'm on satellite, and other customers on the dslreports forum report the same or similar problems. OK, maybe it's a problem, but when I mentioned it on the wxqc mailing list, another list member reported similar problems on another, DSL, service. So, is something going on on the net at large? Ports being blocked? Or am I just paranoid?"
